6 Jun 2010, 09:23 by robbie-77Courtesy of Laurie Anderson & Lou Reed curating the Vivid Festival this year, Atlanta's finest King Khan is back in Australia and this time he's bought his BBQ (Mark Sultan). After last years uber-awesome gig at the Oxford Art Factory when he was over here with The Shrines I had high expectations of great retro styled garage rock, high-jinks and trashy humour and I wasn't disappointed.
Performing in the Studio area of the Opera House, the grandiosity of the venue seemed world's away from the nature of their music, rough, hard edged and unkempt. Fortunately the dynamic duo didn't let the venue intimidate them or tone down their act, and all in the presence of Lou Reed, Laurie Anderson and entourage in the private balcony area looking down like Roman Emperor's into the pit of degenerates that made up a healthy proportion of a hugely diverse crowd.
Kicking off the show King Khan literally paid lip service to Lou Reed for bringing them out here by mid-way through the first song…

For those of you who may not be entirely sure who Mark Sultan is -- he's the legendary BBQ with The King Khan & BBQ Show. This new track we've got for your fearless waveriders, "Misery's Upon Us," has that same garage rock with a side of doo-wap sound that made you fall in love with King Khan and the BBQ Show in the first place.. Never to be accused of being lazy, Mark has also been a member of Les Sexareenos, Mind Controls, The Almighty Defenders and was the singer for infamous Montreal punk band The Spaceshits.

King Khan and BBQ Show
1 Feb 2009, 19:13 by DandelionRadioWith the Festive 50 now over, we get back to regular shows - plus a new DJ, Katherine Godfrey.
Andy's 2-hour February show offers much more than the sum of its parts. small crew are exclusive session guests, providing four excellent new tracks. Brand new music comes from The Race, Y Diwygiad, James Yuill, Joy formidable and Shortwave Fade as well as a storming new remix of a Bomb the Bass classic. There's striking sounds from Andy's unsigned new find Raw Milk, and further unsigned tracks from Galchen, The War Crimes and others. Add Scott's Funky Five Minutes and Teresa's Tasty Tips into the equation, and there really is no reason not to factor the show into your leisure time calculations this February!
Jeff croaks his way through his first show of 2009 with thankfully enough brilliant tunes to distract you, dear listener, from the fact he totally lost his voice, to tonsillitis, the day after he recorded this show.

26 Nov 2008, 15:21 by JerdnaEigentlich finde ich es selber bescheuert seine „Top-Album“-Liste zu erstellen aber ich hab es dieses Jahr einfach trotzdem wieder gemacht. Gerade auch deshalb weil 2008 sehr viel neues passiert ist und es einfach unglaublich viele gute Musiker gibt. Mal davon abgesehen das sich das hier wohl eh keiner Freiwillig durchliest. Alben die mir wichtig erscheinen kommen jetzt gleich zu Anfang, andere bei denen ich nicht wusste was ich tolles schreiben soll, oder bei denen ich finde das sie zwar super sind, aber die Fleet Foxes zum Beispiel nicht übertreffen können, kommen weiter unten. Und jetzt geht’s auch schon los:
Fleet Foxes - s/t
Ich glaube ich bin nicht der einzige der sich dieses Jahr unsterblich in die Fleet Foxes verliebt hat.
Ein frischer 60s Hippie Folkpop trifft auf Mittelalterliche Barock Musik. Warmer Gospel-Gesang, vergleichbar mit den Beach Boys, und eindeutig Honig fürs Ohr!

Andy has two shows repeating every day in September's schedule on Dandelion Radio. His two hour regular show features two brand new sessions: one from John Peel faves Decoration, the other from Fidgital. Decoration's second session for the show includes exclusive versions of material from their forthcoming second album 'See You After The War' and a mystery cover version. Fidgital contribute an innovative live violin and decks set as their session tracks. There's also a live recording from Alex Canasta's album launch party in Copenhagen at which Andy was a guest DJ, as well as an exclusive new remix of a track from the album. The show also has several tracks from bands playing at September's Bestival on the Isle of Wight and the excellent 12" version of Bloc Party's new single 'Mercury'.
The latest instalment of the occasional Andy's Archives finds him once again rummaging randomly through his sizeable record collection for an hour, picking lots of excellent tracks that are at least ten years old. …

21 Nov 2007, 18:01 by ColonBlowMark Sultan has a new record out on In-The-Red records called "Sultanic Versus". It's more of the same king of stompin', greasy, doo-woppy garage rock he was pumping out with King Khan, but with more instruments this time around. He's gotten one of the guys from Les Sexareenos to help out. It's pretty fucking good I must say, and if any of the band links in this review are familiar to you, you should check this release out.
27 Feb 2006, 08:07 by blk_jackHere's a list of the new 7"s and LPs I've gotten my hands on recently.
Mystery Girls - Under My Tongue
Mystery Girls - Turned On, Tuning In
Night Terrors - The Hit
Lightning Beatman - Beam Me Up Jesus
Mojomatics - Ballads In The Suitcase
Oblivians - Strong Come On
Tokyo Electron - Make Me Bleed
Catholic Boys - Actin' Stupid
Catholic Boys - Hurt To Hate
Headache City - Knee Jerk Reaction
Knaughty Knights - He's Gonna Get You
King Khan - Mr. Supernatural
High Tension Wires - Send A Message
Fe Fi Fo Fums - Shake All Night
Hospitals - s/t
ponys - Celebration Castle
So far the only ones I've given good listen to are the Hospitals LP, which is amazing, King Khan's second album, which is also great and the Mystery Girls new 7", "Under My Tongue". Which has the incredible song "We're So Illegal" which I can only assume is about the band living illegally in Montreal (Canada) since... hm, it must be August by now.
